Talent Assessment Battery (TAB)
➢ Cadet Talent Evaluation (CTE; cadre evaluation) The TAB is only in TM, not the Accessions OML (no involvement in component selection). Results from the TAB, CTE and Cadet files drive the Cadet’s branch talent score for each branch. Also, drives the recommendation to the Cadet on what branches they should consider listing as their top preferences. Branch Talent Score is one of multiple inputs to DABM; “Human Board” validates DABM results. Due to the rapid changes of OML and Branching, the PML will brief the yearly changes.
Recommend as always that you check with your unit to confirm any details since, well, things do change and this is a relatively new tool I believe.
